Memphis heavy hitter Young Dolph and his protege Key Glock continue to promote their 2019 joint album Dum And Dummer even eight months after its initial release. The duo’s latest promotional effort is the international video for “1 Hell Of A Life,” which finds the two Memphians 4,531 miles from home cutting up in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Running at approximately two minutes and 45 seconds, the song begins with a sinister guitar riff that gets looped throughout the track. It sets the foundation for other vibrant instrumental arrangements: blaring 808s, crisp snares and muted 16th-note hi-hats. Young Dolph takes on the first verse, coming through with his unique Memphis-influenced vocal cadence. Notable lyrics include “Got an old school but it look like a new coupe inside it” or “Independence Day, we pull up and get it popping.” Key Glock takes on verse two, penning bars like “Baby, I’ma keep balling / And if you see me driving in it, best believe I bought it” and “Robbin’ everything, should’ve changed my name to Robert / Don’t go against the grain, I put your brains on your collar.” Accompanying the song is a music video set in Amsterdam, showing off the two rapper’s lavish lifestyle amidst hazy edits that blend seamlessly with the song’s echoing guitar riffs.
